Women discussing Spiritual Wisdom & Leadership

Spiritual Wisdom & Leadership of Change Makers

Spiritual wisdom can be thought of as the knowledge and understanding which comes from realizing one’s authentic self, and clarity in one’s purpose and path.

These are souls that are aligned in body, mind, and heart. Most importantly, they are connected to their heart space, from where they tap into their wisdom.

They are grounded with emotional equanimity, resilience, and courage. Their human qualities are embodied by their Authentic Self including authenticity, joy, acceptance, and east.

Are these some of the qualities you’d hope for in a leader? 

Of course, they are!

Change Makers

This month I delve into understanding Spiritual Wisdom & Leadership through the perspectives of those who I call Change Makers. 

The common trait among all of my guests this month is that their life is about being service-oriented.

These are souls who are taking creative action to support the continued evolution of humanity.

The catalyst for the change makers first started with an inward journey to make inner changes. They realized that they need to be the change they wished to see in the world. 

Their thoughts, feelings, behaviors, or actions support others in co-creating a world that reflects their inner authentic reality.

We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change toward him. This is the divine mystery supreme. A wonderful thing it is and the source of our happiness. We need not wait to see what others do.
